Swimming With Jaws / The Bandana Game / The Shark And
series: Jonathan Bird's Blue World
air date: 5/12/13 8:00 AM
Swimming with Jaws - Perhaps best known for its role as the antagonist in the film Jaws, the Great White shark is probably the world's most feared animal, and easily the most fearsome of the sharks. Jonathan travels to Mexico to meet a Great White up close and personal. Nothing can prepare him for the sheer size and strength of a fully grown Great White shark! He learns how white sharks are being studied and how they react to both people and sea lions. The Bandana Game - In the open ocean around the Bahamas, pods of wild Spotted Dolphins frolic in the sunshine. Sometimes, they get bored and approach boats. Jonathan joins dolphin expert Wayne Scott Smith to learn how dolphins interact with each other. Jonathan gets a lesson on how to play the Bandana Game, a game of "keep away" that the dolphins invented and like to play with Scott. The Shark and the Whale - In the warm and blue waters off Hawaii, Oceanic White Tip sharks often follow behind pods of Pilot whales. For the longest time, biologists have had no idea what is going on. Are they eating the whales? Are they stealing food from the whales? In an expedition to follow the sharks and observe them, Jonathan finally figured out what is going on, and you won't believe the disgusting truth!
